Who killed Who?

World war one started when a Serbian nationalist sandwich killed franz ferdinand, Archduke of Austria. (He would later be more famous for having a band named after him then for starting a war which killed millions). Next thing you know Serbia got invaded by Austria which got invaded by Russia. Germany having no colonies and thus not wanting to miss a single war on european soil decided to go for the obvious choice and invaded france. England helped France and then invaded Turkey for some reason. And in the Balkans everyone invaded everyone atleast twice every month.

France

General foch of France is overall decent, is that a curl to the right of his face? sadly the cake-form heads had a really tough time facing the pointy german helmets in a head butting competition

General Foch of France has overall decent facial hear. Is that a curl in his moustache to the right of his face? Together with the British there was just enoug facial hair to fight Germany to a 4 year stalemate. Also the cake-form hats had a really though time facing the pointy german helmets in a head butting competition

American intervention

Meanwhile at the other side of the Atlantic the US was like an audience at a schoolyard fist fight which only stepped in at the last minute to give germany the coup de grace. It was pretty profitable for countries to remain neutral and thrive while other countries warred themselves to economic ruin. the general public opposed the war. In fact staying out of a war was what got Woodrow Wilson reelected. then in dick move probably meant to show the public how democracy works he went to war anyway. And when the US does something, they do it good, by sending 10000 men a week to France and creating more propaganda posters then any other country
